Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Pin Important Notifications with PinNotif
Some things in life are more important than the others. The same thing applies to Android where certain notifications like SMS messages, Emails, and other forms of communication are more important than alerts from games and news applications.
When we want something to be seen first, we generally pin it. You can find many stickies in almost every forum here on XDA, and they generally contain quite a bit of helpful information. If you ever wanted to pin a certain notification, you can now do so.
XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ wrote an Xposed module that allows you to pin or unpin notifications. You can do this by long-pressing a notification. When pinned, your notifications will remain even when the rest are cleared. It’s a simple, yet useful module that prevents you from accidentally missing important messages when getting rid of the useless ones. Unfortunately, it must be noted that this module can’t be combined with XhaloFloatingWindow by XDA Recognized Developer zst123, as it will likely crash.
To keep your important notifications pinned, visit the module thread and give this a whirl. There, you will find important information, the module’s source code, and download instructions.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
